a bit, a serious challenge for the obama administration and one of the key components of the health care law. 16 states now say they will not set up the required health care exchanges. they're supposed to be like an orbitz. you go on. this is what i need and they give you the choices for health insurance, those are the exchanges. the states were supposed to set them up. 16 states said we'll not do it. we'll leave it to the feds. congress didn't plan for that. that is creating big problems and causing new questions for the law. we'll talk about it. >>> plus controversial confetti at the macy's thanksgiving day parade in new york. turns out some of the confetti, you can not make it up, may have been shredded police records, complete with personal information like social security numbers and bank accounts. we investigate. >>> a shocking revelation that investigators in the casey anthony failed to look at most of what was on casey's computer. and appeared to have missed critical information, raising questions about her a quittal. how could they do this? could they now reopen the case? "kelly
in the senate so much will be the problem for the obama administration, but republicans in the house of representatives, especially those from the tea party movement and others will be a serious problem. >> what was an important group of republicans during the debt ceiling debate while this election has changed the arithmet arithmet arithmetic, republicans in the house will be key to this negotiation. the two men that need to hammer out this deal, just like it was over the summer, is still president obama and spooeseaker boehner. >> i don't think there's any doubt the president will have his democratic base on board. the question is, will boehner have his republican base on board? will he be able to bring those in? >> those talks continue. >> we'll find out. >>> both congress and the white house certainly under increased intense pressure right now to make a deal. our new poll shows voters are getting rather impatient. let's bring in our chief political analyst, gloria borger, who's also working this. new poll numbers. who's going to get the most blame if there's no deal? >> let's sta
. that permission was revoked by the obama administration even that was granted by the bush administration previously. everybody wants to get sources of energy in their states for not only to be able to get the jobs of getting it out, but attract criminal and manufacturing companies with low prices. so this is the choice we will have before us and to meet sees clearly the the way to go. i'd like to thank all of you for listening and i'd be very happy to take any questions. [applause] >> thanks, dana. if i could just start off with one question. among the natural gas reserves are natural gas reserves in the state, upstate new york. if by some fluke you had governor cuomo regarding potential for hater fracturing in the decision he is facing, what might you say to him? >> i would certainly say to look at the example of pennsylvania, which has created many, many jobs and is doing well and that job and they have an experienced environmental problems. it seems obvious that haida refracting is the way to go and governor cuomo is free to set whatever regulations he wants around that to ensure the
interesting, revealing exactly what we had feared was going on inside the obama administration. first, let's start with his framing of the issue. >> democrats are also going to have to step up here and do some tough things, and the notion that somehow these deficits and our debt are not a threat to our national security and economic future is something i could not disagree with more strongly. there are some commentators on the left that suggest that. >> cenk: it's threat to national security. look, i want to balance the budget, right, but it's not a threat to national security. if oh, my god what if the interest rates go up, but they're at record lows. this is just fear mongering. it's republican talking points. and then second of all you're setting up a straw man. nobody's saying don't balance the budget. the question is how how do you balance it? they always send out a straw man, oh, well, see that commentators on the left don't want to compromise. they do want to. the question is what's in the compromise. the if you notice, the most important thing he said there they're going to have to
the pivotal role of egypt. yes, egypt is pivotal but don't underestimate the role of the obama administration analyst ability to put all the pieces together. without the united states, i would argue there will be no political horizon, that the peace process will not be revived. that's why i'm hoping that president obama in his second term will invest political capital in bringing about and helping to bring about a two-state solution, a secure jewish state and also as independence and viable palestinian state that deals with the root causes of the fighting between hamas and israel. >> and getting back to mohamed morsy and egypt, morsy may be getting pats on the back from the international community but at home certainly much different right now, declaring a whole lot of power. did he use the cover of the israel, ga zag conflict do you think to enact his new powers? >> i have no doubt in my mind that egyptian president mohamed morsy has proved to be very shrewd and calculating. using this particular moment that basically everyone praised morsy is, the americans, israelis, europeans. he used thi
a lot of these discussions have been about how the republicans rolled back the obama administration, making we can then ultimately overtaken and how they maintain that power once they have it. i mean, cloaked in the argument of what is good for america, but there is not allow a policy prescription in there. >> thank you. >> this event took place at the seventeenth annual texas book festival in austin, texas. for more information visit texasbookfestival.org. >> tell us when you think of your programming this weekend. comment on our facebook call or send us an e-mail. nonfiction books every weekend on c-span2. >> next, chrystia freeland talked about a rise of the superrich, the.-- the top 0.one% of the population and the impact they have in the world. this is hosted by politics and prose bookstore in washington d.c. and it is about an hour. [applause] >> thanks a lot. sorry to keep everyone waiting. i will say a few things about what is in the book. as i have been doing some interviews with my book, a favored way of interviewers in the conversation is to save the rich have always been
that killed eight people. good morning, i'm lynn berry. after weeks of controversy over the obama administration's handling of the attack in benghazi, the woman in the middle of it all will go face to face with her toughest critics. u.n. ambassador susan rice is
and all is coming at a time when the obama administration has cut the defense budget, projecting over the ten-year period by some $487 billion and if the obama sequestration were to become a reality that would be a trillion dollars over this period of time coming out of our defense budget, even -- even the secretary of defense, the obama secretary of defense said it would be devastating. he used the word devastating. if that were not enough the obama administration continues to force the military to spend greater proportions of its already depleted funds on a gene energy agenda to include the purchase of biofuels for operational use in construction of commercial biofuel refineries. now, you know, i fully support development and use of alternative fuels including klug biofuels but not at the expense of the military. the focus should be on the readiness of the navy, not on propping up the biofuels industry. i have to remind everyone, we've a bureaucracy called the department of energy. they're the ones supposed to be doing all this experimentation we talk about. the navy according to th
based on open investment policy. i will give credit to the obama administration. they have been very good on investment. president obama was the first democrat in 30 years to put out an open invest a statement? why? because foreign direct investment creates jobs that are disproportionately export-oriented, disproportionately manufacturing oriented, and are 50 percent more likely to be unionized. this is capital we should be fighting for. we need to approach trade in the second among the term with that same degree of confidence going to the point that michael made. i think the world is ready to engage. the german chancellor proposed a trans-atlantic free trade agreement. at degrees to pick up on that the bill fourth. the trans-pacific partnership negotiated out in asia. the chinese followed closely. let's just proceed with confidence because i think people want us to succeed. >> of get out of the way of the conversation, but you mentioned china. jonathan, he and i were in china. everywhere we went jonathan doggedly would hound that chinese. what are you going to do it mitt romney wins
meetings. does she need to go back there? does the obama administration need to get involved? do they need to be worried that you have the egyptian president now who seems tow to be more powerful than he was three days ago? >> seems to be. it depends. we'll see what the outcome of the talks are today. the u.s. officials have to be concerned. not only -- again, just for egypt, but for the entire arab spring. they see here, you know, power being seized. they're wondering -- they know that they've got a financial sword that they can hang over egypt's head. egypt wants u.s. support. diplomatic too. in order to maintain that, it is going have to cut off that supply of smuggled arms that are the source of these weapons. you know, hamas right now is asking that the airport in gaza as well as the seaport be opened up. i don't think that's going to happen. i think morsi is going to be under a tremendous amount of pressure to prove that he can do what's needed. >> let's turn the topic here because this is something we're going to be watching very closely tomorrow, and it really is getting a lot of a
. now, look at the role of private enterprise and public education and what the obama administration approach will be in 2013. this is an hour and 35 minutes. >> welcome. thank you for joining us. we are just getting back. the energy level is probably going to get mellow. we will make that work for us. today's panel is on the question of for-profit and federal education policy. this is a topic that we at aei have been talking about for an extended stretch. in support of the templeton foundation, we have been running the private enterprise projects, trying to think about the opportunities and the challenge. how do make this work for kids in the communities? how do we think about some of those challenges the potential perils? this panel is a close up series of panels and conversations. we have commissioned a number of pieces that will be coming up as a book this spring. we have the opportunity to work. those of you with cell phones, in turn them off. why this topic? the vast majority of what we do in america k-12 is done by public institutions. it is done by institutions run by states.
three years ago the obama administration -- you mentioned this, jim -- suggested a swap of the trr, the the tehran research reactor fuel, in exchange for stopping enrichment. so why didn't that work? so perspectives from the panelists on is it necessary to shut down fordo, and why didn't the 20% fuel swap deal work before? and, i guess, why -- how do we make it work this time? >> brazil has another proposal which i think was a very constructive proposal. it has only one fault, and we come back to diplomacy, its timing was disastrous because it came the day or day before when u.s. at last got china and russia to enforce tough sanctions on -- so i think in washington what are these guys doing? they're sabotaging our successful sanctions policy, and this terrible, you know, difficult partners we have, china, russia, are onboard. and then they come up with something which, you know, makes the whole thing to capsize. so, you know, the turks and brazil got, you know, politely to withdraw, politely. >> so the timing wasn't right before. >> oh, i think it was a very interesting proposal. i
'll disagree with that. but from my view, the obama administration has made it clear, the republicans are in the same place, though i think their anti-federal wing they have party has move today extreme. i look for a shift in inch cament -- to implementation as i mentioned and oversight, waivers that the department's granted, i understand the department is looking to release new rules on teacher preparation, accountability, i think a much-needed effort there. regardless of what those rules are, though, it seems to me this area is ripe for cooperation between the center right and center left. i also know that secretary duncan has said a few time he is wished he had done more on early childhood education. i'm not sure if they're going to propose a new initiative. i certainly hope so. but i think it's a ripe area for investment and reform. now my points are right, the blurring line the need for implementation, the need for a centrist coalition that embraces teachers and parent, that needs fighting on two fronts. while recognizing new issues will emerge that probably fuel this -- few of u
transmitting this treaty, the obama administration conducted an exhaust i have comparison of the treaty's requirements to current united states law. here's what they found: the united states does not need to pass any new laws or regulations in order to fully meet the terms of the treaty. the fact that we've already met our exceed the treaty' treaty's requirements is a testament to our nation's commitment to equality for the disabled. but ther there are still importt reasons for ratification. the veterans all over the united states travel all over the world obvious with their families. raratifying this treaty will hep move forward the day where wherever they travel they will be treated with the kind of respect that every person would expect to have in traveling around the world. ratifying this treaty will also give the united states a seat at an international table that we currently can't okay pievment the united states can sit at the table on disability rights worldwide and provide guidance and expertise based on our experience and leadership. it just stands out like a sore thumb that o
about things like that and in this era, when i look at the amount of time, particularly in the obama administration, if you look at senior officials go to asia throughout the region and they have meetings or others and also the discussion that tends to coordinate with china, there seems to be a lot of efforts try to coordinate. looking out the value of the in the dispute and said that they were shocked and surprised by the level of miscommunication and assessment and the dangers of that between china and japan. so raises the question of whether or not -- i agree with you. i know china wants respect. but whether or not what you are seeing is a strategic or taxable gain by china to use this potential mr. stutzman to look like the unstable part in some of this to help push up the own interest. and that worries me a little bit. >> it is not of domination will respect. it is about whether it will be static or where the agreement will be dynamic. and there is no way that nations are going to agree on what will be the interest. it becomes explosive. >> the issue really is china, india, comp
if things got bad. in this era, when i look at the amount of time -- the obama administration more so than the bush administration, when officials meet throughout the region, and the discussion attempt to correlate with china, there seems to be a lot of effort to try to coordinate. jim steinberg was the fourth member of this panel, looking at the island dispute and said, they were shocked and surprised by the level of miscommunication, miss assessment, and the dangers of that between china and japan. it raises the question of whether or not -- i agree. i know china wants respect -- but whether or not what you're seeing is a strategic game or tactical game by china to use this potential mis assessment to look like the unstable part in some of this to basically helped push out its own interest. that worries me a little bit. >> i think the essential question is not of domination or respect, but about whether [indiscernible] will be static or dynamic. there is no way nations are going to agree on what the consider to be the interests. you drop a little bit of energy into this thing and it beco
. nevertheless the violence continued unabated. in the runup to a meeting with president obama in 2011 president calderon blamed the administration for not keeping promises, calling it knnotoriouy insufficient. what do americans need to cooperate on? in reducing drug consumption but they aren't haven't reduced it and putting the stop to the flow of arms but they haven't reduced it. it's increased. all of thises has fueled a furious debate inside mexico whether the drug war is even worst the cost? the public seems to provide its answer. when it elected nieto who ran on a pledge to improve lick safety as opposed to going head-to-head with the cartels. despite that president elect nieto says he will press ahead with the drug war and maintain close ties with the u.s., but members of congress have their doubts. here is what the head of the subcommittee on crime and ho homeland security said. >> drug shipments or kingpins. he further emphasized that his priority would be a reduction in violence, not a dismantling of criminal organizations. by all accounts this sounds like a reversion to the prepolicie
